Spring launch for Ozannes’ litigation team

Channel Islands firm Ozannes is launching a litigation practice. The new group will open in the spring and will be headed by Jersey advocate Mark Temple, who is joining the Guernsey-based firm as a partner after 11 years in commercial litigation at Ashurst. Senior partner Roger Perrot said: “We said at our Jersey opening in September of last year that we wished to graft a litigation department on to what we knew would be a successful corporate practice. The corporate success of Jersey has well exceeded our expectations and has provided the impetus to get the next phase underway.”
